Time Out says

A restaurant inspired by French and Japanese cuisine with surprising steaks on offer

Much like its sister restaurant Le Reve in Causeway Bay, Bifteck (borrowed from French to mean beefsteak) is a restaurant inspired by both Japanese and French cuisine, bringing together flavours and techniques from both to create surprising dishes. But, there's no steak frites on the menu here. At Bifteck, which is located in the QRE Plaza in Wan Chai, the finest beef cuts from around the world including Japan, USA, Belgium and Australia are used in more creative and delicately presented dishes. 

Menu highlights include the Japanese A5 Wagyu beef, which has been snow-aged with the Japanese tradition and technique yukimuro, to accentuate rich flavour and tender texture. The snow-aged Wagyu is available at market price with limited daily supply, so you may want to pre-order this one to try. Other must-tries include the A5 Wagyu tataki roll with Spanish red prawn and amaebi tartare, lobster jelly and pumpkin mousse, as well as a flavourful grilled Spanish red prawn udon with cherry tomato confit and spicy prawn oil. Drinks, unsurprisingly, focus mainly on French wine and Japanese sake, but there are also cocktails, mocktails, spirits and beers available too.

Bifteck also offers a three-course lunch menu (priced from $208 to $348) that includes daily appetisers and dessert, as well as a choice of the main course with options of signature beef cuts options such as US dry-aged 25 days hanger steak, Belgium dry-aged 35 days sirloin, and Blackmore Australian fullblood Wagyu flap meat, all served with baby vegetables, steamed Japanese rice and a choice of cold pepper sauce, maitake sauce or balsamic teriyaki.  Alternative main course choices include miso Chilean seabass and sakura shrimp udon, and braised USDA prime short rib with tofu hummus and crispy rice.

The restaurant, which seats 58 with two private rooms, is minimally designed. Think exposed industrial-style ceiling, leather armchairs, and a wood-panelled floor around the bar, helping the atmosphere to feel quite casual and relaxed.
